Torch Run

"Cop on Top" Fundraiser for Special Olympics

For the second year, members of local law enforcement will take up residency on the rooftop of Buttercream Bakery on June 12th, 2018 at 2297 Jefferson Street, in Napa. The event runs from 7 am-12 noon. Buttercream Bakery has partnered with Special Olympics, and will be donating a free donut to everyone who donates to the cause. 

Cop on Top is part of Napa County law enforcement’s year-round efforts to raise funds for Special Olympics, which includes the annual Torch Run and Tip-A-Cop fundraisers.
As one of the state’s largest grassroots fundraising efforts, the Law Enforcement Torch Run® has become the single largest supporter of Special Olympics Northern California, a free year-round sports program that serves almost 14,000 children and adults with developmental disabilities. Participants in the LETR help spread the word about the benefits of Special Olympics and how the program helps define the brave participants of these programs as athletes, and not define them by their disabilities. Since 1995, Northern California law enforcement has raised over $14 million. 
We hope to see you there!!
